When Judge Calvin Jeffries becomes the first sitting judge to be murdered while serving in office, charismatic criminal defense attorney Joseph Antonelli finds himself smack in the middle of a riveting case. As he works through the intricacies of a homicide audacious enough to strike at the heart of justice, the ensuing investigation and trial reveal a deadly trail of evil, shattered lives, and revenge. While challenging traditional notions of crime and punishment, the novel also calls into question the very principles of our judicial system and marks the breakthrough of a master storyteller. D.W. Buffas The Defense (Henry Holt, 1997) received great praise and grossed more than 40,000 hardcover copies. The Prosecution (Henry Holt, 1999) was also lauded by critics and garnered equally impressive sales.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Inventing a perfectly odious victim and an obvious killer with the perfect alibi, Buffa cooks up a convoluted legal thriller littered with plot-twist land mines that explode when least expected. Toss in a poignant midlife romance and an innocent, put-upon defendant, and you have a novel with wide appeal…Well-developed characters and the rich Portland, Ore., milieu add depth to this excellent thriller.” Publishers Weekly
The Judgment features well-drawn characters, clean writing, and a complex story line.” Library Journal
“Smart, fast-paced entertainment…A crackling good psychological thriller.” James Patterson
“Solid, believable charcters, an amazing plot, and a story that really does provide both thrills and chills…the most honest book you'll find about the American legal system and the ways in which it can be manipulated.” Portland Statesman-Journal
“Fascinating…D.W. Buffa continues to show great intelligence and erudition…there's nobody else like him.” San Jose Mercury News
